you could contact local hospitals to see if they will accept you for a shadowing/observation period, but be aware they may not be willing to, or they might not led you observe in paediatric wards, so you might be observing adult nursing instead. Another possibility is in a primary school, especially a school for those with learning difficulties etc, while it's not nursing it requires similar skills and is relevant as long as you reflect on it enough.

You can see if your local church is keen on the idea. Call and ask. Also contact schools and nurseries in town.

Great advice above.

Contact schools, nurseries, local community centres/churches to and check the services they offer. You can gain many transferable skills, such as patience and good communication skills, which you would be useful for your course/career pathway. Clinical experience isn't essential for this role so don't worry.

You're likely to require a DBS so it may be wise to get that sorted if you haven't already.

Best wishes.
